Simba Mhere and his friend died in a tragic car accident on William Nicol Drive while on his way to the airport for the 2015 J&B Met in Cape Town.

Exactly three years after the accident when Top Billing television presenter Simba Mhere was killed, driver Preshalin Naidoo was found guilty of culpable homicide by the Randburg Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

Magistrate David Mahango said in handing down judgement that “the court finds that the State has proven the facts beyond reasonable doubt that the accused wrongfully and negligently caused the collision that caused the death of Simba Mhere and Kady-Shay O’Bryan”.
